    Mail merge (2003 SP2)

    I used Word to do a mail merge to send about 100 emails. When the merge was completed and I was ready to send, I got the dialog below. I clicked on the 'Yes" button, and the dialog returned; I clicked on 'Yes' again and again the dialog returned. I waited, but nothing, so I killed Word, thinking that something had hung. When I checked my Outlook outbox, I saw that the first two emails had been sent, and realized that I had to click 'Yes' for each email! What a pain. Is there any way around this? Does anyone have any VB code that can do this automatically?

    Second, the emails went out without a subject line. I realized afterwards that I was not prompted for a subject. How do I add a subject to an email created by a mail merge?

    There is a program named "ClickYes" that might have been developed for this very application. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    As for the subject line, good question, I don't know the answer.

    See A program is trying to send e-mail on your behalf. Stop this message with ClickYes. for a <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> and a shareware version of a ClickYes. Sorry, I don't know how to add a subject to a mail merge e-mail.
